Unexpected Passions

We all know Jonathan Franzen is a twitcher. But did you know Tom Hanks likes to collect 1940s typewriters? Or that Johnny Depp likes to play with dolls?

Sadly, Tom and the two Johnnies couldn’t join us, but Sam Pang has persuaded some almost as familiar faces to reveal their unlikely obsessions.

Lawrence Mooney will be talking about his passion for Vanity Fair magazine - which he’s been collecting since 1994. Tom Elliott will share his obsession with the battle for the air over Germany in World War 2.
